Subject: Excellent "Theater of the Ear!"
I can listen to this again and again. Some prefer the Elliott Reid version from November 15 1949 (find it at http://archive.org/details/Escape_HQ_192) The argument is that the listener cannot get beyond Vincent Price's distinctive voice. I still think this version is brilliant.

Subject: Vincent Price on Johnny dollar
Yes, Vincent Price was on one episode of Johnny Dollar having to do with art theft. Johnny had to travel to Europe to clear the matter up. Can't remember the name of the episode.

Subject: Indeed a great radio "movie"
I have no argument that this is a marvelous story, and it is well performed and directed. But, as a matter of personal preference, I like William Conrad's Escape version better. I think it's just that his voice is more "lighthouse keeperish".

Subject: Did SkipVC mean The Saint?
VIncent Price starred in the fine radio detective series, The Saint".
I think that's what SkipVC meant, since I don't remember him ever on Johnny Dollar.
As for Three Skeleton Key, indeed, it's a perfect radio movie, and shows just how amazing the storytelling power of radio was. It wasn't just TV without sound, it was surround imagination that moved you in ways that TV cannot, being an object that you stare into. TV is theatrical somnabulation, while TV is hypnotism.
Three Skeleton Key, and Suspense as a series - Perfect.

Subject: Best of Price
The best of Vincent Price featuring talented supporting actors and award winning sound effects. The script and delivery conjure up frightening images of terror. If you enjoy imagination and visualization, this may be a winner. Also see Johnny Dollar 580202 for more fun with Price.
